We finally land in Lima at 11am and have 5 hours till we need to check in for our flight to Cusco, so the tour company* takes us to our hotel in the middle of the casino district. We decide to stay up drinking instead of sleeping, and watch all the middle aged white men come in with young Peruvian women, and then see the women walk out alone 30-45 minutes later.
11-01-2005: Awesome!!! This site let's you buy these amusing dustcovers for your books. They are sure to inspire "WTF" stares, and maybe a visit form the local reps from the regional law enforcement agency... http://www.flapart.ca/cms__products.php?catid=1

Vegan politics question... What's the vegan stance on vaccines?

Many vaccines are from injecting a virus into and egg and extracting the vaccine from said egg later.

A new flu vaccine system come from a dogs kidney. The weird part (I kid you not, I heard about this on NPR) the dogs kidney in question come from a single cocker spanniel, harvested in the 1950's. These cells are referred to "immortal cells) because they can treat the cells like a culture and keep it growing, and then cut off bits for use.

Anyway, a lot of medications are tested on animals, but some are actually made using animals. What's the vegan stance on polio, flu, and other vaccines?

Ummm... The shooting was not "on the plane", people. I know you just read the headline, but the headlines are lying.

The plane pulls up to the gate, this guy says he has a bomb in his bag. U.S. Marshalls show up and the guy some how get's OUT OF THE PLANE and runs. The Marshals chase and order him to lay down, which he does. then supposedly the guy reaches toward the bag and then ON THE TARMAC, OUTSIDE THE PLANE, NOT ON THE PLANE, the Marshals shoot him.

Last night I flipped to the Cable News Network (CNN) (45 on Comcast) to see if I could get the weather report and this lady come on with a news/interview program. Her name is Nancy Grace, and damn... It was some of the most biased reporting I have ever seen, and her style was liek an extra sleezy Larry King. Ick... Can't CNN do better than that? :-(

Seriously, you can not talk my word for how bad her show it. Just turn it on for 5 minutes and bask in the glow of truely bad reporting. It's almost like comedy centrals CrossBalls, but these people are serious.
